Report: New Apple Watch to feature internal improvements, same look

Just a reminder: the March Apple Event we just had was originally supposed to herald the arrival of the Apple Watch 2. I’m not saying this rumour is BS, I’m saying that it would be wise to be skeptical this far out.

Report: New Apple Watch to feature internal improvements, same look

If you want to understand how bad a watch-mounted FaceTime camera would be, put your iPhone one your wrist and try it. I love Apple products, but I don’t think thats a need anyone has.

FBI testing new unlocking method on more iPhones

Truthfully, I don’t believe the FBI actually have a hack. I think the FBI needed a way out of this fiasco knowing that it would not come out in there favor after the backlash from huge corporations and general public that are all in favor with Apple. Unless the FBI can show the public that have full access to the so called iPhone 5C .. I don’t believe them.

So I guess Apple was right…the FBI had (has) no intention of making this a one-time event.

I fondled one this morning. It’s a much better design than the 6!

So it will be a s6 edge launched 3 years later, Apple are so lost and so far behind.

Report: Wireless charging, AMOLED screens could come to 2017 iPhones

What is Apple going to do this year with the iPhone 7 if these radical changes come next year?  These would be the kinds of changes you would expect is a design change year (this year).

Good points.

Apple unveils 9.7-inch iPad Pro, adds 256GB capacities to Pro lineup

Well, in all fairness the 9.7-inch iPad Pro only has a little over half of the total pixels on the screen as the 12.9-inch model, so it’s entirely possible Apple decided that less RAM was a perfectly acceptable tradeoff to drive the smaller screen. Or, more likely, the only reason the 12.9-inch iPad Pro needed 4GB of RAM in the first place was to drive the 2732 x 2048, 5.6MP display.

2GB of RAM too.  Wow, so powerful!  What exactly is pro about this again?

Report: Apple experiencing 'internal conflicts' over use of customer data

There is no conflict within Apple. Apple values their customer’s privacy - even if it means less in profits.  Apple is not Google who will sell everything about you to the highest bidder.

Leaked photo alleges to show iPhone 7 antenna line has moved toward new phone's bottom

At least this looks like something I would expect from Apple. It also lends credence to a complete redesign of the phone, instead of some I’ve seen where the antennas just loop upwards along the curvature of what looks like a 6 or 6S. This actually makes the antenna lines look more seamless. I like it.

Apple adding 'native' ads that look like articles to News app

Yep…  but I don’t think it’ll happen to the same extent with News.  I like that you can turn News off at the system-level in Restrictions, and it doesn’t appear anywhere.
RSS never really took off, I find it ideal—but I’m not the average user.  To me, News seems like an abacus compared to Newsify hooked up to my Feedly account…

Apple adding 'native' ads that look like articles to News app

As the stats on Apple Maps proved, I think a surprising number of people are more willing to just use the apps that are already built in rather than shopping around for alternatives.

Why anyone would choose the News app over a good Feedly-compatible RSS app will now be even more of mystery ;-)

Rumor: iPhone SE to feature 4K video capability

If there is 4K video, that makes it a bit more likely that they’ll have a 128GB option, as that video takes up a lot of space….

DOJ raises stakes in iPhone case, Apple chief counsel calls DOJ filing a 'cheap shot'

I have my problems with Apple (For example, I think the upcoming product announcement, and the products announced there, are going to be a joke and a sign of Apple’s complete lack of innovation in recent years)
But I am very proud of how Apple is fighting the government on this.  And I speak as a Democrat who is generally supportive of a larger federal government role in many areas.  But the government is dead wrong here, and beyond that, I am disgusted at their tactics and distortions of the truth to try to win here.

Apple's Federighi officially debunks idea of quitting iOS apps to improve performance, battery life

The exception that proves the rule :)
Facebook cheated and declared itself a “VoIP” app a long time ago. In theory, Facebook did want to start providing telephony services, but ultimately this allowed them to gain background privileges that Apple wouldn’t normally allow, and I guess because it was Facebook, Apple chose to never really call them on that one.

For apps that behave properly, maybe. Facebook?

Apple draws both more support and more criticism in fight against FBI

There is a backdoor.already
Something crucial is apparently overlooked in the discussions over the backdoor.  iPhone and many other smart devices already have valid backdoors, namely, a fingerprint scanner or a set of camera and software for capturing faces, irises and other body features, which can be collected from the unyielding, sleeping, unconscious and dead people.
It is now known that the authentication by biometrics usually comes with poorer security than PIN/password-only authentication.  If Apple wants to claim that they are conscious of privacy and security, they could tell consumers to turn off the biometric functions.  If the authority wants to have those backdoors open, they could tell consumers to keep them turned on all the times.  And, security-conscious consumers could certainly refrain from turning them on.

French National Assembly votes to penalize smartphone makers

I hope all subjected companies cease selling phones in France. Let the French Government manufacture and sell mobile phones that would be subject to no privacy.

Fiat CEO says Apple shouldn't make its own car

Perhaps, just perhaps, they really are smarter than the average tech company and have no actual plans to spend billions getting into the auto manufacturing business.
What if… Apple is making a few prototype cars that completely transform and reimagine the overall driving experience, with the intent of patenting the concepts and technology? I’m certainly not aware of Apple making any acquisitions that smack of large scale auto manufacturing. They do, however, have a recent history of partnering with existing car companies to incorporate Apple tech into their designs.
For all we know, the much rumored Apple Car could be a Tesla that’s 100% controlled by Apple technology.
